1 (3 ounce) package
shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups
wheat and barley nugget cereal (e.g. Grape-Nuts™)
Kind of weird -- the combination of ingredients yields an unusual taste that's difficult to pinpoint. More of a kid's snack than a "grown-up" hors d'oeuvres.
I served this at Thanksgiving and everyone commented on it!
I'll delete this one from my recipe list. I tried. Didn't like. No offense to anyone else, but my taste buds weren't diggin' it. Gave it one star for texture. I liked the combination of the creaminess and crunchiness before the cereal got soggy tasting. This is one of those things that must be eaten right away as it is best cold.
